A collection of stories about what people do when they play games – particularly when it’s not what the rules say to do.
A collection of “house rules” and different ways that people play games, gathered from libraries around Waltham Forest, on display online from 20 September.
We’ll also be collecting new stories to add to the display as part of Play and Create, a weekend of play from the V&A Museum of Childhood and PLAY BUILD PLAY, running at Fellowship Square on 18 and 19 September.
Explore the different stories of transformative play, or add your own.
